In order not to stop the construction of the Chinchero airport, the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MTC) signed an addendum with the Natividad Chinchero Consortium to give it an advance of S/40 million.

Thus, the executor of the new Cusco terminal will be able to fulfill the commitments made with the surrounding communities, build the perimeter fence and continue with the construction of the passenger terminal.

As reported by La República, the signing of this addendum does not solve the underlying problem that hinders the project. The S/40 million does not come from the US$197 million that Natividad requests from the State for price updates.

According to the MTC, there is an annual budget of S/512 million for works at the Chinchero International Airport for 2024. In addition, from said portfolio, they indicate that 7 million passengers will be mobilized per year – doubling the capacity of the Alejandro Velasco Astete airport (Cusco) -; although, in previous sessions, they estimated that the flow would be up to 11 million.

The Chinchero airport was scheduled to be completed in July 2025, however, the date was extended to March 2025, and even so, from the PMO Chinchero—the MTC’s control advisor—they assure that the Natividad Consortium “is not in a position to finish it.” Voices involved agree that the AICC will not be delivered in the Government of Dina Boluarte.
